It's always such an important part of the wedding when the bride is walked down the aisle by her Father. For me, it's when the wedding day becomes so real. Emotions start pouring out, the guests see the bride for the first time, and unless they did a First Look, it's the first time the groom sees the bride. What am I trying to say? You CAN'T miss these shots.
This image is of Mandy being walked down the aisle by her Dad at her wedding with Opie at Jekyll Island, Georgia. As a destination wedding photographer I'd always wanted to shoot a wedding in Jekyll Island, and when this opportunity came up, I was so excited to be able to do it. I love seeing the flow of her dress as it's getting kicked up from her walking motion. And I really love how they're looking at each other...
